Sheldon Jackson, following in the footsteps of his Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) teammate Patt Cummins, has made an undisclosed donation to Gautam Gambhir Foundation to help India in its fight against COVID-19. He also hailed the foundation for the work they are doing during these times.

Jackson released an Instagram story to share the news of the same. He also urged the citizens of the country to follow the protocols in place to stay safe.

“In these difficult times for our beloved country, my heart goes out to everyone who is suffering. I pray that the good times return sooner rather than later. I request you all to please follow the SOPs as directed by the authorities, please stay home as much as possible and wear your masks at all times when you step outside.”

“I have made a humble contribution towards the Gautam Gambhir Foundation (GGF) who are doing an excellent job in helping as many people as possible. I urge you all to do the same and donate whatever amount you can to your trusted fund or organization as every rupee counts the fight against COVID-19. Please stay safe and stay healthy,” Sheldon Jackson added.
